Edison State volunteers help After School Program students with homework and basic skills.
ASP looking for qualified tutors

Empowering Darke County Youth is looking for qualified adults to work in its After School Program. Individuals must love kids and be experienced working with youngsters, typically K-6. Most need help in homework while others need help with their basic skills such as reading, writing and math.

Empowering’s After School Program meets at the Edison State Darke County Campus on school days, Monday through Friday, from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. Days and hours for tutors would be established by agreement.

“We are looking for teachers, substitutes, retired teachers, experienced tutors, even responsible adults who have helped their own children through their educational pursuits,” said Bob Robinson, Empowering volunteer coordinator. “We’ll match the days and hours you wish to work with our needs. Our Edison student volunteer team is great, but we also need some stability and consistency in our program… one we anticipate will be provided by long term adult tutors.”

Qualified adults will be paid by contract session and must complete a state and federal background check. If interested, contact ASP by email: or call Edison State at 937-548-5546 and leave a message for Robinson.
